WOW impressive catch.......BD great memories for sure.
Daughter loves taking black and white pics.......here is some of her work, which was honored in Representative Jim Davis' Art Contest for high schoolers in Hillsborough County........... it is a double exposure of her feet inside some favorite shoes........Tennis, Tap and DrMartin Boots. I have it haning in the hall outside her room.....
BD Cooper is so photogentic!!!! Love the decorations......
This is me kissing stingrays for good luck in Grand Cayman:
This is about a month before Steve Irwin died. I bet this guy's business plummeted after that.
Side note: I'm usually not that pasty white. Thats sunblock on my back. And stingrays taste like dog sh!t.
PM me a pic. I'll help ya. :ninja:
A Cahaba Lily~ it grows wild on the banks of the Cahaba River near where I grew up. I remember my daddy taking us to float down the river to see it in full bloom in the spring........one of my favorite memories.
Shelby's softball team. She is in the bottom row. 2nd from left. They finished first in this tournament.
vanders -- SO glad you posted that pic!! I love the Cahaba lilies. There is one river or large creek near here that I remember someone mentioning they grow by. It's one of few places you can see them around here in Alabama, with the Cahaba River being one of those few places as you mentioned. They're so beautiful.
Lady -- Good pic of your daughter's team!! Congrats to Shelby, too!
Seeing Lady's pic reminded me of these....
My brother, who serves as one of the coaches, and semi-niece (long story) Katelyn when they were posing for team and individual pics of her team, the Fillies:
Hymenocallis coronaria is the proper name for the plant commonly referred to as the Cahaba Lily. The plant grows in rivers across the southeast United States. Current populations exist in South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.
The flowers bloom between early May and late June. The flowers usually open late in the day and begin to wither the next day. In most cases only one flower will open each day. The seeds take shelter in the crevices of rocks found in swift-moving currents.
Many canoe trips take place around the time they bloom~ one reason I LOVE to visit my mama in the spring.

Again, I love all the pics here! I need to learn how to find the pic files from iPhoto to put on Photobucket. It's different from my Windows PC. When I can do that, I'll post a few. iConfused at the moment!
I used this and it makes it easy to load straight from computer to Gator Country.

Stupid me...I tried to edit my last post, hit the " post quick reply" and that is the message I received. Duh.....I guess the message is a little short, since I didn't post a quick reply! lol...
I wanted to add that I love the double exposure pic by vanders daughter, and I'd love to visit the place AU photographed. Beautiful! The "shoe" pic is so creative! I love that kind of art!
So many pics here....beautiful, interesting, fun! Thanks everyone! To many names to mention!
In keeping with our recent Lightning posts.......... thought this pic from UF's lightning research was interesting......
This is my Aunt's back garden in England:
She is 76 years young and tends it all by herself. I guess the British side of me is where I get my gardening bug :ninja:
